About me

I love learning about new things, and diving deep into the multiple processes that can make a thing complex. The movements that make a thing a process, not an event. So, what similar lessons can be learned from writing a song, and all its cohesive parts then performing it for hundreds of people, or planning, planting and maintaining multiple large production urban farms, mixing and fermenting large batches of dough, then shaping them and eventually baking them off, and maybe even running a busy bar, with Jewel waiting for a cocktail at one end, and Elon Musk waiting for an espresso on the other end?

Many lessons can be drawn from all this "process" experience. The biggest lesson I carry with me, is that people are at the center of them all. No matter how abstracted from people some work may feel, humans and their processes are the focus of where I want my work to take me, and the direction I want to align my efforts with.
